While many people have a copy of Eric Ries’s book, The Lean Startup, very few seem to be applying the ideas. This workshop is based on our learnings from mentoring and hosting all four Lean Startup Machine events in Toronto (a weekend conference to bootstrap Lean Startup into participants). If you haven’t been to Lean Startup Machine yet, come to our workshop and get a taste of what you’re missing. You’ll learn what it really means to get Lean.
